With a lifetime interest in Birdlife, Mik Peryer has axtensive knowledge of the local birdlife in the Waikanae Area.

According to Mik "Waikanae is the Bird Capital of New Zealand with many bird species not seen regularly or so easily elsewhere."

Mik has also written a number of children's books based on true stories. See the books and book a tour online at the website.
